Socio-economic issues related to nuclear technologies


Proposed action should examine the total costs of nuclear energy and make the comparison of costs for different energy technologies, taking into account the whole energy system, full lifecycle costs and sustainability criteria, i.e. internal and external costs.

The analysis of possible contribution of nuclear energy to EU climate neutrality by 2050 should consider all the options for how nuclear energy could contribute to meeting the climate target, while considering that some of the EU Member States do not share this view.

The analysis of the available and close to the market nuclear technologies should be performed, covering the full development cycle from research and development, to demonstration and early stage deployment (techno-economic evaluation). The analysis should cover options for the integration of reactor systems with the decarbonised energy system, covering also other energy needs than electricity generation and addressing energy supply t
